- Read each question carefully
- Don't spend too much time on one question
- For "constructed response" questions, read the entire question and respond to all parts (you do get credit for partially correct answers)
- Plan ahead on how many tests you will take at once, you have 5 hours for each test administration but you do not have to take all subtests
